School Bash 2020
Every summer the Englewood YMCA, local businesses, and area
churches combine efforts to help families prepare for the coming
school year - and Kids' Needs is a proud participant in the event.
The Back To School Bash serves children in all grades K through 12,
in both public and private schools as long as they reside in
locations with Englewood area zip codes. Students can pick up
clothing, shoes, school supplies, and much more. Because of the
covid-19 virus outbreak, we will be unable to offer hair cuts and
dental screening as we have in the past.
This year's Back To School Bash will be held on August 1st at the Sky Academy building, 871
Road, across from the Englewood Post Office. Our format this
year will be different from past years. Instead of gathering
inside the Sky Academy building, we will distribute items in a
drive-through line-up. Kids Need will be distributing only
toiletries at Sky Academy on August 1st.
To further help families prepare for the upcoming school year, we
will also have volunteers working at our closet location on
Saturday, August 1st, from 10 am until 2 pm. Families may come
by to collect shoes, socks, and underwear at this time but no one
will be allowed into the storefront. Instead, we will have
sign-up sheets available at the door on which you can list your
children's sizes and genders. A volunteer will then gather the
appropriate items from inside the closet and hand them out at the
The following week, from Monday, August 3rd through Friday,
August 7th, our closet will be open from 4 pm until 7 pm each day to
allow families to "browse" for clothing and other items. You
will be allowed to enter the storefront during these times but we do
have some special requests:
please wear a mask while visiting
only three persons in the closet at one
please observe a 15-minute time limit per

The following week our closet will return to normal operations.
We will be open one evening each week, from 5 pm until 7 pm, beginning
